Takes a Dollar profiles and promotes the work of Vancouver Island Mental Health Society

Takes A Dollar is an annual fundraiser founded on the idea that if every person in Nanaimo gave just one dollar, almost $100,000 could be raised for local charities. These funds could have a tremendous impact in the local community. The organizers aim to spread awareness about the issues in the city that often may be getting overlooked.

Wes Richardson, Andrew de Groot, and Christian Wigmore visited Vancouver Island Mental Health Society to create an awareness video about our work. They’ve also selected VIMHS as one of their supported charities this year! Thanks, guys!
